You should totally follow me!

(at least watch the funny video at the end of this post)

I have a love/hate relationship with blogging. I don't keep a journal
and so a part of me likes the idea of continued blogging to keep
my thoughts organized, written down, and easier to look at and analyze
and figure out.

At the same time blogging makes me selfish. I am constantly thinking
about events in the day and whether they are worthy enough to have
a blog post about them. And how can I be more enjoyable as to attract
more followers/friends? Also, the fact that I tell people about my
life expecting them to be interested is weird and unnatural to me.

Then there is the pictures. I want to take beautiful pictures, a tribute
to my art education, to post on here. That requires time taking them,
editing them, figuring out how to get them to fit on the screen, and then
commenting on them in an interesting way. And I
have just spent a great deal of time typing, trying to get most of my grammar
mistakes out, and attempting to be clever, at least to the best of my ability.
This adds up dear friends. How do you do it with a full time job, a full time
boyfriend, and a full time church calling? Tell me!

But blogging has a great purpose as well.
The divine ability to connect individuals without having to get dressed,
set a date, and organize an activity. We just get on the internet and we are
able to help, laugh, and cheer each other on. Yay.

Honestly, I don't know what sparked all this thinking except it is
one of the days where I feel obligated to blog but have nothing interesting
to say. And to those who feel this online life is a little weird, I agree:

I feel the same way about blogging sometimes... And that video? Hilarious. Took me a few seconds to get it, but after I did it cracked me up.

I feel very similarly to you a lot of the time! I bounce between loving it and feeling totally narcissistic! Love the video!
